Description

Are you at risk for HIV? Should you take an HIV test? What is a test like?

Answer 10 simple questions to determine your HIV risk score. Simply and confidentially, just tap on the answers that best reflect your experience and your score will automatically calculate. You will see a short summary of your results and testing recommendations. Along with the results you will have access to the CDCs database for finding an HIV testing location near you, and a video that shows from start to finish what taking an HIV rapid oral test is going to be like.

About the questionnaire: The ten question HIV risk screening instrument is a scientifically validated tool that was originally designed for use in primary care settings. It was developed to be short and quick to administer but able to accurately determine who should most consider being tested for HIV. The questionnaire was scientifically tested and was found to have a Kuder-Richardson coefficient of .73, which means that users answered the questionnaire items in a fairly consistent manner. The study also found that items on the 10-item questionnaire effectively distinguished people in high-risk and low-risk groups.
